While critics didn't like it, The Witcher is a hit among the fans. It's another high-profile case of the disconnect between critics and the audience.
Half the critics didn’t even watch every episode. They skipped ahead in parts and didn’t even bother trying to get invested in the world. It’s become one of those water cooler moments, like game of thrones or stranger things. Everyone I know has or is watching it. They know I’m already a fan so people keep asking me about it. That’s a good sign. And so far everyone I know really likes it. I’m glad it’s doing well with real viewers.
This is actually good? I can't remember the last time I cared about any TV show.
